we have had some problems with files > 2GB getting downloaded properly with web browser clients -- the MPEG-2/mpeg version is over 2GB.

so what we'd normally recommend when there are problems is to do what you did -- use a separate FTP program. however, it sounds like your FTP program is not seeing it. I just tried with a linux ftp cmd-line program and see it. Is it possible your FTP program doesn't understand > 2GB files?

thanks for heads-up tracey. my guess now is that the problem is in my freeware FTP program. i will ask my friend for a recommendation of a better one. it was strange, because it LOOKED like the file was there, but it said it was 0k in size, so i guess my program was confused

thanks again
